Ugueto, Alto Orinoco, Terr. Amazonas, Venezuela, Oct 10, 1951, L. Croizat 820.

A very large tree in the forest. As far as can be determined, this is the first report of this very interesting genus in Venezuela; although other species do occur in the Guianas and northern Brazil, the genus is better represented in the regions south of the Amazon River.
